Beauty Talk: My Make-Up for Events

I am not one to go out of my confort zone with my makeup, not even for events. I like natural makeup best for any occasion. I am big on letting your best features shine, and just using beauty products to enhance what you have. Having said that, I do look for my makeup to stay matte for the duration of the event (I do use highlighter, but in very small quantities).

Here are my makeup steps: 

  • When I go to events I love to contour. I like to play up my features, and slim down my cheeks. Even if I don’t go all out with the countering I feel it gives my face a nice shape. I use the Anastasia Contour Cream Kit in light on my cheekbones, jawline, nose and forehead with a very light hand. I also blend this out with my It Cosmetics brush, you can guess by now that it is my favourite one, hehe.
  • I like to apply a little bronzer to my face to make me look a little tanned, I am so light skinned it hurts… JUST KIDDING. But I do like to add color to my face and neck to seem as if im not as fair. I use the Pixi by Petra Natural Contour Powder (even though it is a contour powder, it has the perfect bronzing shade for me) I apply this with my Mac 187 brush. I also add a little blush. I like to use the Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in Dazzled. It has the perfect rosy/natural cheek color.
